Man United told to re-sign Romelu Lukaku as club legend makes bizarre transfer plea
| Last updated
Manchester United have been told they should re-sign former striker Romelu Lukaku.
However, Lukaku failed to rediscover his best football during his time playing when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho and was eventually sold to Italian Serie A side Inter Milan in 2019.
This summer, Lukaku has reportedly been told that he is no longer a part of Chelsea’s plans moving forward and has been advised to find a new club.
Former United striker Dwight Yorke has told his former club to sign Lukaku again.
He said to OLBG: “Romelu Lukaku is absolutely still good enough to play for a top-six club.
“I think Man United or Tottenham should take Lukaku on a short-term loan deal and agree to pay a certain amount of his wages. As much as people say about Lukaku, he has a very impressive goalscoring record and he doesn't get as much credit as he deserves.”
Yorke continued: “If you have a fired-up Lukaku who wants to play for you, he's a match-winner and a handful for any opponent in the world.
“Man United have invested heavily in Rasmus Hojlund, but if you want to compete with the best then Lukaku is that player who can score 15 to 20 goals in a season, which is priceless and hard to find in today's game.
“Lukaku is still only 30 years old and a proven goalscorer, I think whoever gets him on a short loan deal will have done good and subtle business.”
So far this summer, United have signed Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund.
Erik ten Hag’s men started off their 23/24 Premier League campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.
The Red Devils will be back in action this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur.
